ToEG: The Emperor is coming here?!?!

As the hulking monstrosity advanced on the Imperial lines, a lowly guardsman quaked in fear. "Issa weesa gonna die?"

He swiftly did, as Lord Vader turned and lopped off his head with his power sword. The rest of the squad had no more problems with their resolve.

Piett turned to Vader and asked "Was that strictly necessary?"

"Perhaps not" mused Vader "But I always found that guy irritating anyway..."

"I can get this situation under control" stressed Piett "I know we've suffered some setbacks, but I need more men!"

"Well you can ask the Emperor when you see him"

"The Emeror is coming here?!?" stuttered Piett.

"Indeed" said Vader "In fact his arrival is immenent. He wishes to take charge of this campaign, he has something in mind for a young rebel..."

"I shall redouble our efforts!"

So my requirements for ToEG phase three are as follows:

Primaris Psyker Palpatine – 70
Veterans; carapace, 3xPlasmagun, vox – 150
Veterans; carapace, 3xPlasmagun, vox – 150
Vendetta – 130

My simplest month by far, apart from extensive conversion work to do for the veterans, and having to paint bright red... I don't like painting bright colours, my palette is very grim dark. But should manage to get it done on time touch wood.

Wish me luck

ToEG: Phase Two Review

Well the time is up and then the late score slot too, so here's the scores from the end of phase two.

Sadly Dan has dropped out for Medical Reasons, so we're down to 7. I'll look at getting a substitute in to even things out for the tournament and the apoc game, preferably the same one for both but we shall see.

A reminder of phase two points availability

5 for on time
3 for late (within one week of deadline)
0 for unpainted

Also a bonus 3 points for getting a 1000 point legal game in.

Ginge - 14
Rich H - 14
Rich F - 14
Rob - 14
Rich A - 14
Scott - 9
Ken - 4

Next up for us is phase 3, with the usual painting points available. I'll also be running a 1500 point tournament at some point in this phase, date to be confirmed. Assuming it's before the deadline for painting, I won't be enforcing a painted models requirement for this - I'll save that requirement for the apoc game finale. There will be bonus points available for the tournament, for those who finish in the top three positions. I did consider scoring on a sliding scale for everybody, but that would mean the winner fo the tournament would gain far too much advantage in what is supposed to be a hobby based challenge, so the points available are 5 for first, 3 for second, 1 for third... and bugger all bonus for the rest of us!

Good luck, further info will be in the phase three part of this forum topic.
